Hair Transplant Cost

Hair loss causes a lot of emotional distress to the patients and its treatment can be a costly affair. It can be an expensive procedure depending on surgeon’s expertise and the location. However, India offers cost-effective options as compared to other countries.

The cost of the hair transplant surgery is calculated as cost per graft or cost per follicle where the number of follicles or grafts is decided by the surgeon based on grade of baldness and patient’s expectations. The ideal way is to go for a proper hair analysis and consultation with the surgeon to get the estimated requirement. After that, comparatively cost-effective place or a surgeon can be opted for.

Apart from the cost of surgery, blood tests before the surgery and the medications required after the surgery may be chargeable. It is important to be aware of the fraudulent practices that are increasing with the fast-growing market and only go to a clinic after inquiring about the reviews and results.

Graft Estimation for Male Pattern Baldness

Male pattern baldness can range from minor recession of hairline in grade 1 to extensive baldness in grade 7. The requirement of the grafts and thus, the cost of the surgery will depend on the grade of baldness and number of sittings.

Grade Grafts required (Minimum) Grafts required (Maximum) Technique suggested
Nil Nil Hair transplant is not recommended and some medicines can be used to promote hair growth
800 1200 Hairline reconstruction by FUE
2000 2500 FUT/FUE for hairline + PRP/ LLLT for crown
3000 4000 HT by desirable technique + BHT. Medical therapy is mandatory to preserve the pre-existing hair. PRP and LLLT can be done.
4000 6000 Surgery can be done over 2 sessions with FUE or FUT or BHT
5000 8000 Giga sessions done over 2 sittings with FUE or combination of FUE and FUT
6000 more 2-3 sittings may be needed. Artificial hair restoration should be explored.

(This is just a rough idea. The exact number will depend upon the physical examination, hair analysis and patient’s expectation.)

Graft estimation for Female Pattern Baldness

Female pattern baldness is different from male pattern and requires more expertise. Most of the females are not comfortable with the idea of shaving their head so the surgery is more time consuming and difficult.

Grade Grafts required (Minimum) Grafts required (Maximum) Technique suggested
I 1000 1200 1 session FUE/ Non-shaven FUE
II 1500 2000 1-2 sessions FUE
III 2500 3000 2-3 sessions FUE

FUE vs FUT Hair Transplant Cost

Whatever procedure patient may opt for, the final cost of the procedure will depend on the total number of grafts. Even though FUT requires a more trained staff and expertise, the cost of FUE is much higher as it requires more time. Also, the steps of FUE requires more of surgeon’s time and expertise than the team itself where follicles are extracted and then transplanted graft by graft.

FUE
  • Requires more of surgeon’s expertise
  • Time-consuming as compared to FUT
  • Extraction is done graft by graft
FUT
  • Requires trained staff
  • Less time consuming
  • Strip excision is done.

Factors affecting the cost of Hair Transplant

The cost will depend on various factors such as:

  • Location of the clinic

  • Total number of grafts/ follicles
  • Method of surgery – DHT (Direct hair transplantation), FUE (Follicular Unit excision) , >BHT ( Body hair transplantation) or FUT ( Strip surgery)
  • Grafts extracted from the beard or other body site may be charged more than the ones extracted from the scalp.

I started facing hair loss at the age of 26 but it was not very noticeable. But at 29 the hair loss progressed very quickly and crown almost became empty. And further my hair line receded quickly. Now at the age of 31 I started looking very old. I tried many medicines like homeopathic etc etc but nothing seems to work. Then I started searching for my options and finally decided for a hair transplant.
